At Build 2016, Microsoft announced that they will be releasing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update this summer, for free, to all Windows 10 customers. It includes several new features including improved Windows Hello support. So far, Windows Hello was supported only on apps. With the upcoming update, Microsoft is bringing Windows Hello support to Edge. Microsoft Edge is the first and only browser to natively support biometrics, with supporting sites.
Windows Hello enables you to easily sign into your device with enterprise-grade security. Yet, studies show over 80% of people use the same password across multiple web sites, managing around 20-30 different accounts requiring passwords. So with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update we’ve made it possible for you to use the same easy, yet strong, security of Windows Hello with Windows apps and Microsoft Edge, the first and only browser to natively support biometrics, with supporting sites.
